About the program:

  • Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is an evidence-based group therapy for preventing depressive relapse. It also reduces acute depression, anxiety and stress.
  • Mindfulness is a non-judgmental way of paying attention to the present moment.
  • Cognitive Behaviour Therapy is designed to bring awareness to the habitual negative thinking that leads to depressive and anxious spirals.
  • Combined, MBCT interrupts how we habitually react to situations, so we can choose to respond in more skillful ways.
  • Research has demonstrated MBCT is as effective as antidepressants in the prevention of depressive relapse or recurrence. (Kuyken, 2008)
